Personal:

Junior at SUU majoring in Exercise Science and minoring in Psychology. Served an LDS mission in Independence, Missouri. Planning on graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Spring 2020 then going to PTA school after. Haven’t decided yet but I might take out my fifth year of eligibility. If I do, I’ll declare psychology as my second major and work on that my 5th year. We will see how running is going, if I’m doing really well then I’d like to stay and see what I can do. This is an opportunity not a lot of people get so I want to make the most of it and chase down my dreams. We will see what life brings.

Jordan River trail. I started out with Garek and Dakota, but today I just couldn't hang on. According to Garek their first mile was 6:40 so I guess that explains it. But I still slowed down a ton and about 2 miles into it I started to feel sick to my stomach, eating dinner right before might not be the smartest thing to do. I think I'm dehydrated too.

I felt even worse than yesterday. Probably because I went at the hottest time of day. Hmmm not doing that again. Did Wasatch loop.

Wasatch loop again. It was an angry run. I didn't realize where I was going until I was on foothill. Oh well I like this loop. I didn't cool off until I was going up Thunderbird, and by then the rest of the run is enjoyable. Slowly my mood improved, I feel better but it still makes me mad to think about it. The run itself felt like a good one though.

 I probably should be doing more than 6 a day, I'll have to make up the miles this weekend. I'm gonna start doing 2 a days.

Despite my efforts to get up earlier, I didn't go for a morning run. I did bike for about an hour with my brother though, but still no excuse.

When it cooled off I went over to 9th and did VA loop and then Shriners run to the fountain by the fire station. Then just came back across guardsman and back home. It was relaxed, so I'd guess about 8:00 pace, or around there. Felt pretty good.

I did cemetery run again, time for team runs. It's nice to run alone every once in a while but it gets boring. I also went on another bike ride, I'm not the biking type and this one was up the avenues so I was actually kinda tired after. Plus my bike isnt meant for those hills. I remember Bill once saying that we can convert 3 miles of biking into 1 mile running, so counting 3 more miles of running from the 10 miles biking :)

Today was the first XC practice! We met at Sugarhouse. I went earlier and did 5 with that group, then the rest of the team came and we ran to Edens house and back. The first 5 I felt okay, at Alden I fell off the boys. So with about a mile left? I started to get really lightheaded. The next 5 were easier. Added a bit to make it 10 and did core. I didn't eat anything before so I'll try eating something small tomorrow to see if that helps.

AM:

Earlier group went up and cut diagonally to foothill and down the side street to 21st and up to the Walmart parking lot, then down Foothill to Sunnyside and went back to Sunnyside park. I fell off along 21st going up to Walmart, along Foothill I started to catch up, but had to stop at a light. That was about 6.5. Then the other group joined and we did Shriners run to the first fountain and back. My breathing felt really off, I was breathing a lot harder than I should have. I also woke up kinda sore. Added about a quarter to get to 11. Did crunches and push-ups.

PM:

4 miles with Stormy. Did squats, one legged squats, and lunges. I took an ice bath to try to get the soreness to go away.

Today we met at the zoo trail. First group did flagpole run along Wasatch, went a little past the fountain to get to 3 and turned around and came back. Then the others joined and we did 5 along the trail to red butte, we went up to the yellow gate and back to get it to be an even 5. I felt pretty good, not as sore as yesterday so that's a plus.

Today we met at the track, first group went up to the crosswalk on Sunnyside and went down by the church on Bonneview and got on 15th, over to Sugarhouse, under the new bridge to 11th and over to 9th, and back up to the track. Then when the others joined we went to the gully and went in through the bottom, I did 2.5 laps. Came out the top and back to the track. Then when we got back we did 8 hill strides. They didn't seem very hard to me, which is weird cause I remember them being hard. On the first one my knee sort of popped or something and it hurt where it hurt before, I haven't felt it in while except for after a run when I sit cross-legged or twist it somehow. I was careful on the rest about it, but it didn't bother me again. Sort of weird. Did 1.5 grass laps to get to 11.

Met at Liberty, did 3.5 with Bill and Garek on the wood chips before everyone else came. Then we did a lap warmup, 2 laps of fireman, and a lap cool down. I was kind of tired. The second lap of fireman I mentally crashed, but I stuck with the group, just had a harder time getting to the front. I don't think I got enough sleep last night.

AM:

Shriners run - 8 miles. I felt good, except my knee was hurting in a different way. It was tight and hurt a little to bend. But it wasn't too bad. Once or twice I got a sharp pain where it has been hurting lately, usually when I am turning around a corner. I iced, massaged, and rolled out. Perfect running weather this morning though.

Crunches, push-ups, mountain climbers, arm swings, and lots of jumping jacks (they seem to be the only thing that get my cardio up without hurting my knee.) it's turning while running that hurts it, going down or up stairs sometimes hurts too. My dad thinks I might have torn or sprained a ligament, but I hope that's not the case.

If anything good can come out if this, it's that it forces me to do core every day. Crunches, push-ups, weighted arm swings, jumping jacks, squats, and planks. Biking doesn't hurt it either so I went up to foothill and over to the flagpole and got on the trail and took it to Wasatch. The other side of wasatch :) I turned around and came back the same way. A little under an hour total. It felt good to get out and go around, even if it was on a bike. It got my heart rate up which is good :) I've decided that it's not the end of the world as long as I cross train until I can run again. My core is really sore so at least I can get stronger there.

Rode my bike up to the zoo and got on Wasatch, then went to Thunderbird, then turned around and cut down 13th and went back home. I'm gonna do core later.

Tried running today, went to practice. Felt good to be running again. My knee hurt for like the first quarter mile but it warmed up and was fine after that. I think it's an IT band problem. I rolled out last night and my left one was way tighter than my right, and my left knee is the one that's been hurting. On the run I stayed with Bill and Chris until after the turn around, then started to fall off but tried to catch up, caught them right before the end. It was 6 miles along Jordan river parkway trail. My calves felt really tight two miles into it. Then we did 10 strides where I felt really out of breath, then a mile cool down.

Practice was at Liberty. We did a lap on the wood chips, then we did a lap around the pond. Then we did 10x1 minute on 1 minute off around the pond. I tried to stick with Bill, my first 5 were good, then sort of died. I tried to catch up but slowly got farther and farther back. I was breathing really hard again. But it felt good to open up the stride. Then a lap on the grass and added a mile to get to 8. The knee feels good. Getting new shoes today and my new garmin comes on Monday :)

Wasatch loop, up by zoo. Cut it a little short. I picked up the pace and it felt like a good run. Knee hurt a little, but wasn't too bad.

Practice was at Sugarhouse. We did a full lap warmup, my knee didn't feel good from the start. It bothered me when we were going up the hill and turning onto 17th, sharp pain again. Went away and was fine until going down 21st a little later. Really was bad going back into the park down the hill, had to slow down a ton to lessen the pain, which now came with almost every step. Stopped for a minute to walk, then continued to the fountain, the pain not so bad. Then we went over to the State hill and did 4 of those, only had one that was decent. The knee wasn't too bad, bearable but I was still careful about it. Then went over to the white tree and did that hill six times. I didn't go as fast as I could have because I was still paranoid about my knee. Maybe it was stupid of me. I wonder if part of the problem was that I stopped taking Ibuprofen this weekend, I just don't like taking it for a long time. Then ran over to another fountain and down to Emmaline's house for breakfast, Happy Birthday Emmaline!

Woke up at 5:30 so I would have time to run, man that's early. I did VA loop, youth conference starts today! Used my other pair of shoes cause my new ones are packed at the bottome of my bag :/ knee felt good. Rolled out last night and I think it helped.

I couldn't get up and run in the morning because we already had to get up at 5:30 to go to the temple, so I found time between lunch and the water games to go for my run. It was so hot but I was just glad to be able to run, my young women's leaders are the best! I went over to Snow College's track for my run. It's an asphalt track! I've never seen one before so it was kind of cool. 4 miles.

When I got home my dad wanted me to mow the lawn, which meant I mowed it while it was sunny and had to run in the rain. It was fun at first, then it started showering and it wasn't so fun. It was also super windy. I did VA loop and started to do Shriners run until I decided to turn around, went back along guardsman. I felt good, ran with my new Garmin. My first mile was pretty slow, 8:05 but I brought it down to a 7:23 average. Fastest mile was a 6:58 (mile 5). By then I was hoping to get the average pace down below 7:20, but I guess I got close. I like running with a garmin :)

Today was at Liberty, we did a wood chip lap warmup and then went to the mile mark and did 3 800s. I hit 2:43, 2:54, 2:45. Ran back to the mile mark for recovery. Then did cool down around the park. It's been a long time since we've done any speed work, so I guess it was okay. Knee felt fine, started to hurt a bit on the cool down but I rolled out. I actually found that rolling on the inner side of my thigh helps more than IT band, but I still roll my IT. There's a spot just above my knee on the inner side that feels like there's a knot.

Wet, rainy day in Island Park. When I got there I convinced my cousin to follow me on the four wheeler, quite an enjoyable run. It's beautiful up here! Then it started to pour and I didn't want to make my cousin stay out and get drenched, so we went inside.

Lots going on today, switched to the other cabin (the one on the river, not the reservoir), not really any excuse but didn't end up going for a run.
